It's no real surprise that I drink coffee. I mean, come on. I'm a mom. I'm the mad mommy. You know what I'm saying, right?

Anyway, coffee is like, the nectar of the moms! (Waits for AMEN moment to pass)

So, I think its more of a surprise when a mom DOESN'T drink coffee! Seriously? No coffee? How are you standing?

Starbucks Copycat Cold-brew with Vanilla Sweet Cream

Well, I drink multiple cups of coffee a day and I like to treat myself to some Starbucks when I grocery shop! Who doesn't, right?! Lately, I have really been diggin' the vanilla cold-brew with sweet cream, and now I can make my own Starbucks copycat cold-brew with vanilla sweet cream!

This Copycat Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew Recipe is simple to make and even easier to enjoy! I love being able to have a glass whenever I like!

First, you'll want to make your own cold-brew!

How to cold brew coffee

Ingredients:

4 cups of water
1 cup of ground coffee
1 mason jar or container
Cheesecloth and a fine strainer

Instructions:

Mix the ground coffee and water together in a mason jar or some other container. Cover the jar and allow the coffee to steep in the fridge for at least 12 hours. Once it is ready, place your cheesecloth into your strainer and strain your cold-brew into another container. Seal it and keep it in the fridge for up to one week.

Cold brew coffee is better than your regular drip coffee because it's much stronger! Starbuck's does a great job at making cold brew, but you can make it for a fraction of the cost at home.

Lately, I have really been diggin' the vanilla cold-brew with sweet cream and now, thanks to my friends at Torani, I can make my own Starbucks copycat cold-brew with vanilla sweet cream!

  21. That’s my favorite cold Starbucks drink! One question: Do you use all of that sweet cream in one glass of coffee?

    Reply
    • No, that makes about 4 of the 6oz cups or 2 of the large tumblers.

      Reply
  22. Oh great! Thanks a lot. It seemed like too much for one serving but I wanted to be sure. Can’t wait to make it. I paid $5.25 for a Nitro sweet cream today and that’s just too expensive for daily enjoyment. Gonna start brewing my cold brew tonight. Cheers!

  25. Looks good but I do not drink sweet coffee (no sugar or sweetener), so this is a no for me. Why is that all of the fun coffee drinks are sweet don’t they know that some of us don’t take our coffee that way. Oh well guess I could leave out the syrup…

  26. Love love love cold brew and sweet cream, this will save me a lot of money for sure. Thank you so much. How long do you let the coffee sit on the counter ? I believe you say overnight but I just made it this evening wondering if it’ll be ready by morning that would be like 12-15 hours

    Reply
    • Yep, overnight is good! 🙂
